Photographer Addison Scurlock was the premier documentarian of D.C.’s African-American elite in the early- and mid-20th century. His iconic images of Marian Anderson singing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial are among his best known, but visitors to Nellie’s Sports Bar, located in the same building where Scurlock worked for decades, can also see his work. A new mural at 1800 ½ 11th St. NW, created by Spanish artist Carla Fuentes in conjunction with SPAIN arts & culture and Art Bloc DC, commemorates Scurlock’s contributions.
